Marriages end for a variety of reasons. A couple may decide to end things after discovering that their marriage has simply run its course due to ‘irreconcilable differences.’ In other cases, one spouse will decide to end the marriage due to the actions of the other spouse. Physical or emotional abuse, neglect, and adultery are commonly listed as reasons for a divorce. When actress and singer Jana Kramer, filed for divorce from former NFL player Mike Caussin earlier this year, she listed both adultery and irreconcilable differences as reasons for the divorce.
The most challenging part of a divorce, however, can be coming up with a child custody arrangement that works for everyone and serves the best interests of the children. Kramer and Caussin reportedly have come to an agreement on how to co-parent their five-year-old daughter and two-year-old son.
Kramer reportedly named ‘primary residential parent’ in parties’ child custody agreement
According to recent court documents, Kramer apparently has been named the ‘primary residential parent’ in the parties’ child custody agreement and will have the children 240 days out of the year, while Caussin will have them the rest of the year (125 days). Each parent will be permitted to make decisions relating to the children’s day-to-day lives, when the children are in their care.
The documents apparently also stated that Caussin and Kramer agreed to remain cordial, provide a stable and loving environment for the children, and not speak ill of each other or each other’s family. The parties also said they would handle any disagreements that arise via text or email.
Kramer and Caussin agreed to divide up holidays based on even and odd years, with the exception of Mother’s Day, which will be spent with Kramer every year and Father’s Day, which will be spent with Caussin every year. They also agreed share time on the kids’ birthdays. As for child support, Kramer will allegedly pay Caussin $3,200 a month.
